What Protein Powder Should I Use For My Smoothies?

I like whey protein which is a milk-derived protein source. I choose the isolate type because it contains super high amounts of essential amino acids and branched chain amino acids.

If you are lactose intolerant, the whey protein isolate is safe and contains the amino acids that your body needs for optimal muscle repair and enhanced immune function. It is also a better choice for people who are looking to maintain low levels of body fat.

I try to choose whey protein isolate from grass-fed cows. I suggest that you drink some of your smoothie before you start your workout and then finish the rest after your workout. This regime provides energy to start your workout and speed up your recovery. Smoothies are also great between meals snacks.
